Apple announces Sept. 15 event where it’s expected to announce new iPhones

Apple just announced a digital-only event on Sept. 15 where it’s expected to reveal its newest iPhones. Apple typically unveils its new iPhones during an event at its headquarters in Cupertino, Calif. in September, but this year it will host it online-only due to the ongoing spread of the coronavirus.Â

Apple is expected to announce four new iPhones this year, including two “regular” iPhone 12 models and two iPhone 12 Pro models with new designs that include sharper edges around the corners. For reference, the new design will be similar to 2010’s iPhone 4, according to TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Screen sizes include a 5.4-inch model, two with 6.1-inch screens and a big model with a 6.7-inch display, according to Kuo, who also said that Apple won’t include headphones or a charger in the box.

Bloomberg said in April that the iPhone 12 Pro models will have three cameras and a new 3D lidar sensor that helps with augmented reality applications. That sensor first launched in the latest iPad Pro models earlier this year.
